You're Great!

Happy chilled Sunday my friends,

My card today is for my very dear Uncle Tony. I realised it his Birthday this week and didn't think any of the cards in my stash really suited him. I wanted to have a card with a sweet sentiment on the front as he really is great and I don't tell him enough.

So here is the card I must get in the post today!


This card was initially inspired by the challenge at Fusion. It was the sweet sentiment on the front of the picture that got me thinking but I didn't a stamp the shape I wanted. I decided to use the wood frame, the bright colours of the green and purple flowers as inspiration and this turned into a kraft base and the colours of the checked stamp and green card stock lines. Very different than my initial idea but I guess this is how inspiration works.
I got the layout from Seize the Sketch doing my own CAS version.

I will also enter this into the new challenge The Male Room and the kraft challenge at Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Here is the Fusion inspiration:                And the Seize the Sketch layout:
